  1. Transalp
    Hi all, I was wondering if anyone had any advice on who to go to for parts? Who is the best / best value / most helpful supplier? I also need a new battery and was wondering if I should go for a direct replacement or find a more modern sealed battery? Cheers!
  2. Africa Twin
    Should be replacing mine and I see that Honda has superseded the RS type (rubber/plastic seal) with Z ones with metal shield. These have less drag but aren't completelly sealed as RS ones. Any thoughts on why was this done or what are the benefits?

    I'm in the process of renewing one of the bearings in the suspension linkage of my 2002 RD07A as it was a MoT failure. But I was wondering if it was possible to convert the loose needle bearings to sealed caged bearings. Has anyone done this? Is it worthwhile? What are the benefits? Iain

    I finished my chainoiler bodge. I put 200 miles on it today and it works surprisingly well. What it ISN'T is pretty. My bike is a 1990 Transalp with many Africa Twin bits. It's like this because the ATs were never imported to cruiser-happy America and poor sods like us have to build our own...

    Just wondering if anybody else out there has the same problem as me. The ambient temperature sensor is over reading by 5-10 degrees C when it's been used for a while. I spoke to trail tech and they said it's a common fault on this model, because it's a sealed unit, they are having problems...

    This is a great piece of kit that I bought whilst in the States a couple of years ago for $45 (about £30 at the time) but it is available online. Basically it’s an additional fuse box that enables you to quickly and easily power any additional accessories you want to put on your bike. I...

    Where do you hide your stache of Viagra when travelling? I have a couple of places - one is in that open (frame) tube which connects one side to the other(above the riders footpegs, below the seat), sealed with a couple of rubber bungs. It's always handy when you see the possibility of a...
